2016 Supplier Email Blast Marketing- Plan Ahead!

In 2015, DistributorCentral rolled out a new Email Marketing Service for Supplier Members. Suppliers are seeing great results from the blasts they have sent out over the first half of the year.

It's never too early to get a jump on your marketing agenda. Take advantage of our special pricing available through September. Reserve your 52, 36 or 24 week blast programs by: July 31st - Save 20%, by August 31st, Save 15% or September 30th - Save 10%. The earlier you book, the more you save!

Suppliers, you should be thinking now about what you want to promote in 4th quarter and 1st quarter of 2016. Plan out a calendar with your staple products that need to be accessible regardless of season or special promotions. Then keep your marketing for these products fresh and ongoing to keep them top of mind. For seasonal offerings, content needs to be available and put out long before your customers ask for these products.

Check out the article below by our Marketing Director, Stephanie Protz, for more tips about how to make your email blast marketing more effective.

Make Your Email Blasts Count

Effective email blasts are an art form. The most impactful email campaigns are relevant to your target audience and strike a balance in email frequency that keeps your brand fresh in your customers’ minds without overloading them.

Keep it Simple

Think about your own email inbox and what types of emails catch your attention and cause you to react.

Create an Awesome Subject Line

Make sure your subject lines make sense, are relevant and persuasive. Remember, you have to compete with all the other emails that are being sent out by your Email Blast Service Provider. Make sure your subject line will catch attention.

Living in Your Pipeline

If you’ve been in sales for longer than a week, you have heard someone – a manager, co-worker, or accountability partner – stress the importance of building an active sales pipeline. Even so, many sales professionals look at building and maintaining an active pipeline as a “non-sales activity” not critical to their growth. It’s time to think differently about a sales pipeline, using it as a guide to both strategic thinking and actionable steps to sales growth. To get the most out of your pipeline, you need to focus on three areas: the need, the approach, and the execution.

The Need

1. Focus – You simply cannot keep everything in your head. Notebooks, sticky notes on your desk, email reminders aren’t going to give you the complete information necessary to deliver maximum efficiency. The pipeline is a system to manage leads, status, next steps, reminders, and other sales activities for you. As a salesperson, your time is best spent on the best prospects – the ones ripe to take the next step in the sales process. The pipeline will manage that for you.
